This 1954 IHC 120 1/2 ton pick up truckwas Hot rodded by the previous owner to haul his classic harley motorcycle to car shows and use as his shop truck at his service station in northern minnesota. He lowered the front suspension using a oldsmobile front stub and installed a 455 big block olds engine. He used a olds 12 bolt olds rear end. The v8 engine runs like a dream with no knocks misses or smoke. Notice in the video, the engine valave covers and air cleaner are painted to show off the patina. Really neat custom paint work there. The truck has a nice mean sound from the good exhuast. Nice throaty sound to it. He installed a B&M rachet shifter. He passed away two years ago and the truck sat in his shop until the estate could be settled this year. I bought the truck, and trailered it to our shop here in Waukon Iowa and ran it off the original gas tank for errands and the video. I installed a new brake master cylinder along with two new rear brake wheel cylinders, I rebuilt the carb, installed a new thermostate housing and made sure all of the lights (headlights, blinkers, tailights, backup light etc) all work I noticed the alternator guage, temp guage and oil pressure guage all work. The speedo and gas guage were in/op. The vaccume brake booster should be replaced and the tires also should be replaced (dry rotted and one belt in front tire letting loose) The truck over 40 mph has a shake in the front due to the steel belt letting loose in my opinion) The seats were custom mounted on welded wheel rims to the floor and seat. Really a neat look! the windows go up and down but need lubing and there was some cracks in the passenger glass (easy fix flat glass) As the video shows, it is a truck you can drive right away as you tweek it to be a perfect daily driver hot rod/ rat rod. The body is very solid and the paint/patina looks AWESOME! this truck comes with a clean minnesota title numbers matching the vin tag ready for you to register. When we ran this off the original tank, I noticed some light sedimentation in the fuel filter so I would recommend cleaning out the gas tank. This is a really cool rat rod and it gets tons of looks when I park it outside of my business and I had a blast driving it around town and for the video!Neat feel to it! The air cooler in the window, license plates, dash magnets do not go with the sale as they are part of my personal collection. I do not want to overcall this truck or undercall it, let the video and pictures tell the story. I invite you to come by appointment to check out the truck or hire ebay to do a independent inspection for you before bidding. I require a 500 dollar non refundable paypal deposit within 24 hours of auction end, if I do not get the deposit within the time frame or before you come for the truck, I willa ssume you are a dreamer or a scammer and not serious about buying it. as the truck is over 10 years old, the miles are sold exempt. I listed this as a Chevy other pickup in error and I couldnt figure out how to change it, it is a international.I can recommend shippers I have used in the past who have been very reasonable. If you have any questions call 563 568 5111 or 563 568 1182 thanks and have fun bidding on this very neat 1954 international hot rod truck!
